Re: MCC... campaign setting?

I have some old maps from the TSR RPG Gamma World and I use those as the basis of my setting. I think you can really do a campaign anywhere, but I like to start my players out near their home town so it starts out familiar, yet changed.

There‘s meaning 4 which might make more sense in context of Lankhmar and Leibers stories.
Nice, and not at all what I was expecting! :lol:

What I find interesting is that everyone seems to equate "swords & sorcery" with fantasy, but Leiber's stories are clearly a mix of fantasy and horror. 8)

Re: What other Appendix N inspired settings would you like to see?

I know you mentioned "Stalking the Night Fantastic" but the attached image reminds me that DCC Cthulhu would be pretty neat. Lovecraftian New England has a lot of fun places -- Arkham, Innsmouth, Dunwich, and others -- and it would be interesting to have creatures from Lovecraft's mythos s...

I agree 10%. Lahnmar is pretty much "low fantasy" from the get-go and it's a fun set of rules as well. Give it a look!

Re: New Judge Here Question About Old Modules

Since we're talking old (pre-DCC RPG) modules, I would love to see DCC RPG conversions of all the old material! Seems like a low-effort move that would dramatically increase the amount of DCC RPG canon, especially for those of us who aren't as into Lankhmar and the other product lines that have bee...

Re: Will we see more TSR Classics instead of Judge's Guild?

Their best material is top-notch, their worst is highly cringe-worthy. JG was known for being very up-and-down as far as the quality of their products, so I wouldn't just look at one random product and then make a decision about the company. Both Dark Tower and Caverns of Thracia are considered to ...

I can see why some people would want them to be published though so I think its alright. Ultimately the sales on these will determine if ...

Re: PLEASE - the Giants/Drow series neeeexxxxxttttt!

Since WotC did their own Giants hardback not so many years ago, I suspect that GG has less enthusiasm for that project compared to a few others. No advantage in competing with WotC on this.

Re: Will we see more TSR Classics instead of Judge's Guild?

I think that many of the best TSR modules have already gotten OAR treatment, and some of the others have gotten WotC treatment. (For example, look at Tales From the Yawning Portal and see some awesome modules already converted into 5E. I can imagine that Goodman Games would avoid doing those since t...

Re: Question on new Lankhmar 5E book and magic.

The downside, of course, is that Goodman Games will only invest a certain amount of resources to the Lankhmar IP, so if they are producing more 5E Lankhmar that means probably less DCC Lankhmar. :( There are separate 5e and DCC creative teams, so I don't imagine it actually slows anything down -- i...

CapnZapp, I think we're on the same page overall with this, or at least more similar than different.

Re: Question on new Lankhmar 5E book and magic.

I think that the Lord of the Rings 5E rules (Adventures in Middle-earth) are an excellent example of how 5E can make a world come alive in ways not the same as the standard core rulebook. The way AiMe put a culture/race spin on classes, for example, gives a solid Middle-earth spin to the rules. The ...

Re: Run ! Movement & Run ?

(1) In regular combat round action I allow move-move to replace move-action, where action could be fight or something else. To me, that would represent running, since the character is focusing all attention on movement. (2) If I wanted to simulate a race I would throw some randomness into the thing....
